Mental blockage :/

How do you get round it? I'm reading some fairly detailed technical books and I should be able understand it becuase even though it's quite techy it's explained as simple as possible and so instead of me taking it all in it's going through one hear and out the other. :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:

    I think the best thing you can do is take a break and do something else to completely take your mind off it then go back to it with a fresh pair of eyes. I often find I get it when I read things of absolutely no interest to me.

    In such cases I just keep attacking the blockage, armed with the knowledge that I can understand what I'm reading or that I surely know what I wanted to say. It always gives way.

    Do it in gradual steps. Don't try and learn it all at once. Paragraph by paragraph or something. If you don't understand it, read it again and again until you do. Maybe even write it out in your own words.
